My focus is on the non-Gundam fans here. Change like this may not be
liked by all of the die-hards, but people who don't like the Gundam
look and stay away from the story may like this new look and think
its a good "jumping on" point for something new.

Just because you think its silly looking, Probe, does not mean every-
one does. But I thinks its kinda silly too ^_^
